EBay's Meg Whitman: "I'm a HUGE Proponent of Alternative Energy"
"I'm a HUGE proponent of alternative energy," Whitman told an audience of 6,000 women and Texas Governor Rick Perry during her keynote address at the Texas Conference for Women Thursday in Houston.
Whitman said developing solar energy, windpower, and biofuels technologies will create jobs in the U.S. and bolster American exports to China, Japan and other countries.
"We need to keep innovation alive," she said. Whitman made clear that focusing on alternative energy should be a cornerstone of America's economic revitalization.
